and nothing done further towards
the use for which It was intended
until about a year ago,, when the
matter was brought to the attention

With this change has oome a great
change In burial customs.
The old time coin was made in
one andenly familiar style. It might
be made of whitewood or oak or
mahogany, and It might be expen-
sively trimmed, but it was still a cof-
fin; and by the tabinet-maker or the
undertaker all coffins were made. The
modern burial casket is made in hun-
dreds of styles and Its manufacture
is a business by Itself.

imitation of oak or mahogany, nma=

than that of a coffin; and a cloth cov.

as $40. The great majority are those
ranging in price up to about $100,
and the greatest demand Is for cas-
kets black cloth covered.
There are burial caskets covered
with embossed velvet; and metallic
caskets of aluminum and bronze.
burial caskets of bronze coating from
$1,100 to $1,800; and there are many
caskets, some in great simplicity of
design and others richly covered,

THE DOCEA8BD WIF'8 SISTER.
Marriage with a deceased wife's
sister, although it has been lawful
la this country, was only legalized
In Great Britain quite recently. And
as such marriages are clearly forbid-
den Id "A table of kindred and af-
inity, wherein whosoever are related
are forbidden in scripture and our
laws to marry together," which
stands on the last page of the Eng-
lish prayer book. the vicar of Eaton,e
Norfolk, England, refused to give a
man who had married his wife's sis-
ter the Holy Communion as they
knelt together at the altar rails. The
Vicar said he considered them "open
and notorious evil livers," which the
rubric of his prayer book authorized
him to feel from the sacrament. An
appeal was taken to the ecclesiastical
courts, and the question has been d(e-
elded against the clergyman. The
question has now been settled by
"law," and as for "scripture," seeing
that the children of Isreal were per-
mitted to marry a wife's sister when
the wife was deceased, the average
man would have thought It wise to
abstain from fighting a battle over
a divine ordinance which was Intend-
ed by its founder to a symbol of
peace. The two English jnonarchbs,
Charles II, and George IV., who were
designated "religious and grnaclous"
in the prayer book, were never re-
pelled and the church of England.
as it has no pope. seems to be wise
in leaving her members to the disci-
pline of the conscience rather than
to the discipline of the priest. Un-
doubtedly another link between
church and state has now been brok-
en, and possibly when some of these
high church zealots see a Baptist or
a Lutheran claiming the right to oc-
cupy the pulpit in St. Paul's Cathedral
in a disestablished church, they will
be disposed to admit with Sydney
Smith and Voltaire that there are
"men, women, and clergymen," Such
contentions hasten the disestablish-
ment and disendowment of the
church "for better or for worse."--

S~MI-DECOLIEBTAGE GOOD FORM.
The semi-decolletage, as I call it,
is an Americanism. In London one
sees the full decollete used indis-
criminately for anything that happens
after 7 o'clock. Personally I have
never altogether approved the Eng-
lish usage I., its entirety. The de-
collete gown never seemed to me In

quite as apart from the decolletage

dice that may be as low-cut in the
lining as a full decolletage, but the

It is beautiful to see the graces

difficulties. The prisoners in tlMv coun-
ty jail at Milwaukee have "presented
resolutions to Ben Johnson, the re-
tiring jailer," thanking him fir his
treatment of them "during his re-
gime." The maker of the "address
of presentation" is under indictment
for murder, "a boy who beat a gro-
cery collector to death in a wagon
during a storm,' but a tender heart
and sympathetic disposition. "We
wish to thank you for the little acts
that made us forget for an Instant
that we were In jail," the regretful
guests say to the parting host. Lit-

In the first legal meeting of the citi-
zens of the little town of Albany, N
H., every soldier in the place was
summoned to assemble.
The officers were duly chosen, but
It turned out that there was only one
private. Looking wistfully at his su-
periors standing in array before him,
the solitary representative of the
"Gentlemen, I have one request to
make; that is, I am the only soldier,
and I hope you will not be too se-
vere in drilling me, but will spare
mea little, as I may be needed an-
He also remarked that he could
form a solid column, but that "it
b racked him shockingly to deploy."-'
iCAT KNEW THE RULES.
Turned to the Right Coming Down
Stairs, Just as It Should.
"I was greatly surprised the other
day." said he, "as I was going up it
long flight of stairs.
"There was a cat coming down the
left side of the steps. I was all pre-
pared to keep over to my left andl
let the cat go through and indeed
I moved over to that side.
"What surprised me wai that the
cat changed over to its right and pre-
o Vared to let me go on up on the up
per side. I have been wondering ever
simce wtat impelled the tat to do that
S and bow the animal ever came to

"It Is an odd thing." replied the
S arer, "but do you suPlpoe if that
eat had met you on an Isnglish stair-
way It would have kept to the left?"

Cremation With PoHce and Firemen
Watching at Oak Point.
When box or flat freight cars or the
.'ew York Central and New Haven
railroads In (his city are condlenmned
as no longer fit for service they :are
sent to the graveyard, which Is the
swampy land that adjoins the Oak
Point freight 3ards.
Lately they have been burning the
ears there, which has caused the fire-
men a good deal of trouble, as peo-
ple have turned In alarms on s-eing
the burning cars. The roads up there
are not very g-,od and more than one
piece of fire apparatus has been bog-
ged. This provoked the firemen, who
made a complaint to 'Ohlef Croker
about these unnecessary alarms.
The ch!ef thereupon Informed the
railroad people that If they wished to
burn cars they must first notify him
and also get a permit from the Bu-
reau of Combustibles, which would
detail two men to superintend the
work and also watch the fire alarm
N.ow after a car Is ecndemned It
Is sent to the repair shops and dis-
mantled of all movable fittings. It
Is then put aboard a flatcar and run
out to the "graveyard" by the wreck-
ing train. When It arrives there It
is lifted off the flatcar by the wreck-
er's derrick and then set afire. Two
firemen look on and see that no one
rushes to the fire boxes.
There was a time once whn the
railroad gave people living In the
neighborhood permission to chop up
t.he cars and use( the wood as fuel,
but more of the Iron went than the
wood and the permission was revok-
ed. The next morning after the
cars are burned railroad employees
sift the aihes for the iron, which
the railroad disposes of.-New York
Revere's Ride Not a Myth.
It is curious how many Intelligent
persons will read without understand-
ing what they are reading. Were
this not so we should not now be4
having a convulsive tempest in a tea-
pot over Paul Revere's famous mid-
night ride. The letter from HIancock
to Gerry that Mr. Ilenjamin has pub-
lished does not make this ride nor
does Mr. Benjamin say that It does.
All that Mr. Benjamin says is that
from what Hlancocik wrote to Gerry
the midnight ride of Paul Revere
was unnecessary. This may be quite
true in the light of today, but we
,arr not dealing with what was nce(s-
sary or unnecessary, but with what
was actually done and it was thought
necessary at that time, perhaps, that
Revere be sent off to give the mid-
night warning. Paul Revere has beenI
aptly called "The Me('ss'iger of the,
Revolution," from the many rides he
made, far and near, on behalf of the
people's cause. His famous midnight
ride is an historical fact, and not
merely a poetic legend of Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow. Next time

Estimates of Panama Canal Cost.
The proposal to Increase the ap-
propriation for the construction of the
Panama Canal is not unexpected and
should not provoke serious criticism.
At even the largest price now sug-
gested tihe canal will be well worth
having. It is worthy of observation,
however, that the advocates of the
high-level lock system now ask for
tho construction of the canal a larger
surn than it was formerly estimatt.d

forming a social trio, Lord Durham
came in with his Imperial air and
said, 'I do not know whether your
royal highness objects to cards on
Sunday evening; for myself I think
there Is no greater harm in playing
on that night than any other.' 'Nor
I,' said the duke. 'If it is wrong to
play on Sunday. It is equally wrong
to play on Monday or any other
night.' I felt distressed. Thinks I
to myself. 'What shall I do?' At
that moment the duke appealed to
Lady Durham, who gave a faint as-
sent to, yhat he had said. I,. of
course, was silent when his roya!
highness, suddenly loaning forwr',4
from the immense arm-chair in whloll
he was half burled, addressed me.
'1 think, my dear madam, it is cot-
sidered a sin to play any game on
Sunday in your country.' I replied
instantly in a calm, earnest and em-
phatic manner, so that, although a
little deaf, he did not lose a word:
'Your royal highness Is right. We
think it a violaUon of that command'-
ment which bids us to keep holy the
Sabbath day, and we also think it is
setting a bad example to our de-
pendents. who cannot so well discern
S Ibetween right and wrong.' The o!J
gentleman drew himself back In hil
Chair and remained silent for sev-
S oral lautes. A solemn pause ea-

at what I had done. Still. I did not

"One of the most interesting things
that came under my observation was
the odd manner in which the people
wore their hair," said Dr. Harry Dor.
sey, describing a recent valt to New
Guinea and the leading traits and
dharaeteristics of the InhabKants,
iokewn as Papuans. "One type wore
the hair standing up from the head
at a -length of seven inches or more.
It was trimmed with wonderful regu-
larity and with mathematical accur-
acy. The hair was greased with
cocoanut oil and painted red. At a
Sditahce it looked like a rising sun.
Another type of the inhabitants
who wear their hair in an unusual
fashion was described by Dr. Dorsey.
"Starting from the forehead," be
said, "the hair is brushed back over
the ecalp and hangs down to the
waist. It is a perfect mass-an in-
tricate Jungle. I am sure it was never
combed and it was impossible to run
the fingers through it.. At a distance
it looks like a cap with the visor
"One other odd type of hair dress-
Ing-coiffure, if you will-was ob.
served on this visit. The hair was
gathered at the front and back, then
brought together above the head,
where it was enclosed in a basket-like
cylinder. The end spread out aboet
two Inches. Apparently these caps
are never removed from the head."-

a lady to change from one side to

have somebody tell me which is
right for sure."-New York Sun.

arranged that both sides of the paper
can be used. The embossing on one
side of the page is between the lines
of the embossing on the other. The
cost of production will be reduced by
fully 40 per cent.-New York Trib.
